Key question: which livestock GHG reduction method(s) should receive policy and RD&E focus and which should be avoided or given lesser attention due to differences in farmer adoptability?

Rationale: investment into RD&E, and policy on livestock emission reduction is best aimed at methods which have higher potential adoption rates and faster adoption timeframes. Historic and recent RD&E in livestock emission reduction methods has not sufficiently taken farmer adoptability into account.
